We’re all looking forward to the long sunny days stretching ahead. At Norwich Sunblinds, we think we’re really lucky to have the Norfolk Coast just a hop, skip and a jump away. With that in mind, we thought we’d explore nautical inspired fabrics to give you a taste of coastal living.
So, whether you’re within easy reach of the sea or not, dip into our selection of fabrics and enjoy. You might even feel like a ‘sea change’ when it comes to your blinds and curtains.

2. Head for the beach
There are few things nicer than heading for the beach on a sunny day. In Norfolk, we are blessed with gorgeous beaches including Brancaster Beach with its stretch of golden sands and Holkham with its sandy beach backed by pinewoods.
Choose fabrics inspired by the sand for your bedroom curtains or living room blinds. Your curtains and blinds will be made in Norfolk by expert craftspeople at Norwich Sunblinds. It all starts with a home appointment when we can advise on the best options for your home.
